She also intends to begin a Major in Fibres and Material Practices at Concordia University in Montréal this next September. Her work has been shown in severals places in Montreal (Canada) and Nantes (France).
Here are some words from the artist herself.
My artistic interventions mainly emerge from intimate contents of various personal spheres. The topic of the intimacy, declined throughout the daily life, had led me to develop tangible forms of a Self in relation to its environment. Thus, my projects are generally performative actions and installations that amalgamating textile, drawings, writings and photography.
My framework of artistic intervention settles within the paradoxical aspect of the presence of intimacy in the public sphere and its impact on the latter. Working from the in-between situation, I am interested in the effect of the junction bringing together concepts presenting a certain polarity. Depending on the projects, antinomic crosses are visible between comfort / discomfort – intimacy / extimacy – personal / interpersonal – interior / exterior – objectivity / subjectivity – visible / invisible – awakening / sleeping – animate / inanimate – private / public.
